Its population of more than 1.8 million makes Sapporo the fifth largest city in Japan. Japanese and non-Japanese alike rank the city at the top of their wish list of places to live in Japan. Sapporo hosted the 1972 Winter Olympic Games. It was in the late 19th century that the city began to import skills and ideas from the West for its city development projects. This means that Sapporo has been open to the world from the very beginning. It also organizes international events, including the Pacific Music Festival held every summer, and the Sapporo Snow Festival.

"I have been very fortunate to come to Sapporo to study and learn Japanese. The best and fastest way to learn another language is to be immersed within the culture of that language. The people of Sapporo are very open and friendly and so daily life is quite enjoyable. Within the school, it is nice to make friends who all share in the common goal of communicating in Japanese. The school itself has always treated me very well, they provide the grammar, and vocabulary, it is up to you to make them work."

"A dream has come true. This is what I feel for being here in Sapporo. Since my childhood, I've been deeply interested in Japanese Culture. For this reason, now that I'm studying Japanese at university, I came here to improve it and this school has been the best choice. The teachers are so kind, and their ways of teaching are very helpful to let you learn Japanese in an easier way. Obviously, you have to study hard, but if you do it day by day there will be no problem. And of course Sapporo has so many places waiting to be explored...Unfortunately I'm here only for 3 months, but after graduating from my university, I hope I can come back to Sapporo to study soon. So all of you that in this crazy world want to learn Japanese, come here in Sapporo, because I'm sure there will be no regrets."
